An open letter to the British Chiropractic Association

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Following on from Simon Singh's victory last week at the Court of Appeal, where he won the right to defend himself against the British Chiropractic Association's now-infamous libel suit on grounds of fair comment, the legal blogger David Allen Green has published an open letter to the BCA on his Jack of Kent blog, urging them to cut their losses and settle the case now, rather than fight on and risk an even more expensive defeat.

Here's a choice quote:
"One hopes the BCA will have learned their lesson on this.

The claim should never have been brought, but one can see why the BCA hung on until the Court of Appeal decision.

The BCA can still extract itself with some dignity now the procedural advantage has been lost."
